How To Make Prawn Sticks In The Air Fryer
This prawn skewers with Thai dipping sauce is a quick and healthy meal! Each shrimp is coated with a dipping sauce that has bold nutty and sweet flavor.
Let’s start with gathering the ingredients. You need just two simple ingredients: the Thai dipping sauce ingredients I previously shared in an earlier post, and shrimp. Other optional choices to include in your shrimp skewers are zucchini, bell peppers, green onions, and cherry tomatoes.
Be sure that the shrimps at minimum are the large ones – the bigger the better! At the grocery stores in the frozen section, you can easily find 16-20 shrimps in a bag. The shrimps must be deveined and shells removed.
Once the ingredients are gathered, it’s time to start threading the shrimp and vegetables.
